A Jacket.

This was my final patternmaking (DS 253 Fall 2009) project (and what I made instead of a third piece for my collection in Apparel Structures II). Basically, this is my first design that I made from start  to finish, from sketch to muslin (okay multiple muslins), to paper pattern, to fashion fabric.  (Photos by Mom)

Asymmetrical cotton twill jacket with contrasting navy top-stitching. Will have functional pockets and will be fully lined in navy fabric that is seen on the belts.

Collar can be worn up, to fight those fierce spring winds (or if you just feel like being dramatic)

Reversible D-ring belts at waist, sleeve cuffs, and collarZipper and snap closure

If I had all the time in the world, I would make this jacket in a bunch of different materials/colors. (leather, wool, fur…I want a winter version- wouldn’t a faux fur collar be so cozy?) And make a man-version for Zach (see below).

From left to right:  Original sketch, work in progress, the messy studio from everyone pulling all-nighters to finish projects, and my wonderfully enthusiastic and supportive friend Zach modeling my jacket.
